Get Your Documentary Fix

Get Your Documentary Fix

Despite my best intentions to get out and about this winter, the truth is, it’s actually just really really nice to curl up under a blanket in front of the tv when its freezing cold outside. I am *very* into documentaries, conspiracy theories and morbid stories about kidnappings. Does this make me a nutcase? I’m […]

One&Only Le Saint Géran, Mauritius

One&Only Le Saint Géran, Mauritius

I never knew how much I wanted to go to Mauritius until I went to Mauritius.
